All bony joints are not synovial joints. There are different types of joints in the human body, some of which are movable and are called synovial joints. Only synovial joints contain synovial fluid.


There are:
1. Fibrous joints where bones are fixed immovably, such as sutures of skull
2. Cartilagenous joints which are only slightly movable, such as pelvic symphysis
3. Synovial joints which are movable joints

Several types of synovial joints are reported from human body. The diagram here enlists different synovial joints present in our fore limb.
